If you are a technologist you no doubt have thoughts about security and how to improve your approach to enterprise-wide defense. Odds are you have concluded that the only way to mitigate the threat is through automation. Right?


Please join us for a discussion on automated removal of cyber threats on Thursday June 12 at 11am eastern for a webinar that will provide insights on how to execute on automating for defense.

Here are the details:

If you’re trying to stay ahead of advanced persistent threats getting inside your network while working with shrinking budgets that impact headcount and training, then you know that defending your enterprise isn’t easy. Manual remediation is costly and requires manpower and time you don’t have. In this educational presentation, CTOvision’s Bob Gourley will provide actionable information that will help you review your security architecture and enhance your level of automation. The concept of automated remediation will be examined with new insight, along with suggestions on how to implement a machine-guided, advanced remediation strategy.

Participants in this webinar will: 

  • Learn how offensive measures can support your defensive strategy
  • Understand benefits of automated malware removal, not just remediation
  • Learn ways to reduce remediation costs and improve operational efficiencies
